Safic-Alcan’s new Scientific Trend Series begins with a journey into the skin microbiome – one of the most promising fields in cosmetics. The objective is to learn why and how to formulate products which take excellent care of skin microbiome to improve skin wellness.
The journey will start with a market analysis of cosmetic products positioned around the microbiome. The objective is to better understand which market segments are concerned, what are the recent consumer needs and behaviors and what is driving this market. Inspiration will come from examples of recently launched products. Also, because of the current COVID-19 crisis, strengthening the microbiome of a skin which has been damaged by excess usage of hydro-alcoholic gels is critical.
Then, most recent scientific learnings will provide eye opening information on the microbiome. We will discuss the microbiome composition, its diversity, how it changes with skin and outside conditions (like pollution) and with age.
We will go on with several solutions from our key partners illustrating how to improve skin wellness by formulating ingredients having a positive impact on the microbiome. For example , we will look at :
- Boosting the growth of S. epidermidis, a strategic element of the microbiome, with a purified probiotics cytosol extract which has been fermented with sodium hyaluronate.
- Expending the population of skin beneficial bacteria with a lactic acid bacteria.
- Increasing microbiome diversity or inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria.
Our journey will end with a futuristic view on microbiome. How far are we from being able to design a “tailor-made” microbiome for a healthier skin?
